Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor accesses a webpage, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites which display identical content at all times, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently decreases the site loading time. The module can be quite efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
